Default NOX 800: aftermarket bluetooth earbud delays

I picked up a seat of these to use in the heat, and hopefully in shallow water.
https://www.amazon.com/Boltune-Bluet.../dp/B083P1HY43

Yesterday I ran out to a local park to test them out, and the delay was very noticeable, to the point that target location was greatly impacted by it. I ended up throwing the ear bud in a pocket and detecting without headphones.

These headphones are BT 5.0 with AptX technology for low latency. Does anyone have tips on how to improve this? I plan to return them and try again if I can't get these to work as well as the over ear headphones the Nox800 comes with.

I think I may have found the issue. These are AptX, not AptX LL, I didn't realize there was such a difference.

I'll let you know if they work any better. I am keeping the other headphones as the main headphones for my cell phone, as they are comfortable and well built, just not LL.

I believe the nox runs bluetooth 4.1, not 5.0, that could be the problem.

So how do you like the Aukey's? I've been using them a couple of months and they are great in the heat.

In the water? Looks like we’ll be finding them in a water hunt. Heck my wires earbuds keep falling out.
